about the issues we care a great deal about. the real stability that people expect is how this congress treats them and treat their needs and never is that tested more clearly than in a time of a natural disaster. that is when people feel the most helpless . by and large, it is a long road back but those first few steps like emergency relief that was provided by law -- by the localities must be compensated for. the next stage of recovery is so essential to the character of a community. after the storms last year, it affected the characters of the communities and his district and that was 2011 and here we are at the end of 2012 having some of the same hits by nature with the severity, the power of water and in some places fire earth, wind, fire and how it affects people. nature pulled the rug out from people, literally and figuratively, in their communities and homes, in their schools, and in their workplaces. are we to say to them now congress is going to pull the rug out from under you in terms of your hopes and expectations? tell me that. we cannot tell our constituents that would not

delegation to congress. we're a diverse country with diverse ideas. but the greatness of america comes when we're able to find common ground. the failure of the last congress was that the tea party extremists refused to work together. for them, compromise is a bad word. we're counting on all of the members of the new congre congress-democrats and republicans. to reach across partisan lines and work for the good of all americans. as we welcome this new congress, folks, i hope that one idea that we can call on can be agreed on by all. >>> you know, being proud of what you are only grows when you learn to deal with others and appreciate them. only insecure people are afraid of things that are not identical to them. if you're really proud of what you are, embrace people on the other side and learn how to make the country stronger. it will strengthen you. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton.

three political maneuvers that we are going to see coming up in congress, that people will start attacking the middle class. i believe this was our best opportunity to really take care long-term of the issues that we need to address to a balanced approach. >> to follow-up on that, you you voted early. you are not just waiting to see if it was going to pass and then vote no. the idea that obama kind of thatsome leverage theire, you wanted to see him fail, that he has to go back to the leverage -- that he does not have the leverage -- >> after the republicans walked away from the negotiations and tried the plan b by speaker boehner, it became clear, even after they tried to amend the senate yield that they could not do so dosh and the senate deal, that could not do so. -- it became clear, even after they tried to amend the senate deal, that they could not do so. i could understand people voting for it because they wanted to get past the so-called fiscal cliff. a deal that increases the size of deficit does not provide a long-term solution. a deal that lets people who have income of

article one, congress inviting article 2, the president, to come and take the oath of office from article three the chief justice of the supreme court. it's a great time to celebrate the constitution. however, i do say that the tone will be different from what he practiced during his first term. his first term was centered around a one letter word "i" -- an "i" term for barack obama. i hope it will be we've got to solve these problems to go. i'm not talking about we in yes, we can, but congress has to work with the president. the president has to work with congress. so that requires presidential leadership. we didn't see a lot of it in the first term. i am hoping he will reach across the aisle to solve some of the big problems like war on terror, like the challenges of the deficit and the debt, and also to get a budget. we haven't had had a budget in a long time. i hope he will step up to responsibilities to be a president that is inclusive rather than exclusive and focus on the word, we can do it together. >> eric: this morning, on fox sunday, it's common ground and grand themes,

nothing in congress where they have duly re-elected him as speaker for another term. which just goes to show, there really is one rule for ordinary american workers and another for that special class of political waste and mediocrity. thanks so much for watching. "hardball" is next. >>> deficit masquerade. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm michael smerconish in new york for chris matthews. leading off tonight, bait and switch. if you watch the follies of the fiscal cliff negotiation, you surely heard one thing, republicans want to cut the deficit. well, here is a headline for you. no, they don't. according to our first two guests tonight, republicans are hiding behind deficit cutting to mask their true goals, protecting the rich from tacks and shrinking the size of government. keep that in mind when the next self-imposed crisis comes calling in a couple months. also, the best news of the day, the 112th congress is history, and it made history in many ways. the least productive, most unpopular congress since people have been tracking this sort of thing. the 113th can't

old, it's in with the new. the 113th congress. will it prove to be the same old matchup between the white house and capitol hill? the new members of the senate will be sworn in just about an hour or so from now on capitol hill. a bit later on this afternoon. house speaker john boehner could face an historical vote to keep his seat today, just a day after the all-out mutiny on the s.s. boehner. >> there's only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims, the house majority and their speaker, john boehner. i called the speaker four times last night after 11:20 and he did not take my calls. >> the dismissive attitude that was shown last night toward new york, new jersey and connecticut typifies, i believe, a strain in the republican party. this should not be the republican party, this should not be the republican leadership. >> under pressure the speaker issued a joint statement with eric cantor, saying getting critical aid to victims of hurricane sandy should be the first priority in the enough congress. and he scheduled two votes on sandy relief bills, th

2012? well, we not only have a new year, we have a new congress starting tomorrow, and of course again the new congress has got to be better than the old congress. what a colossal embarrassment. they new over a year and a half ago they had to do something to avoid america going over the fiscal cliff. they knew they had to do something in an balanced way that would include spending cuts and new revenue, and they took to the last minute to do it and we still ended up with a lousy deal that increases the payroll tax for every american and defines middle class americans as anybody making under $400,000 a year. hillary clinton still in the hospital this morning with a blood clot on her brain. so much for those idiotic republicans who accused her of faking her illness. now what i want to know is will allen west and john boldton and other republicans who criticized her get out there and apologize. don't hold your breath. i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off because now the government is going to help you fund your healthcare. real

prosperity. if we're going to accomplish this, we must work together. republicans and democrats, congress and the white house. the federal government and the states. the public sector and the private sector. mr. speaker, some might say that saying those things is a cliche. but as we all know, members are going to have to engage with and rigorous debate, and there it is going to be the clash of ideas, a rigorous debate, but it needs to be done with good faith and the spirit of compromise. i realize and some argue that compromise is a sign of weakness. in fact, one of the great strengths, mr. speaker, of our nation's founders, was their ability to compromise. the very structure of this institution, the united states congress, the very structure of our institution, which joined the people's house, where we are all privileged to serve, with the united states senate, was known as what? the connecticut compromise, or the great compromise. that is the very basis of our founders. too often we forget that while we should never, we should never compromise our principles, we must always, mr. speaker
